4 luxury cars burned by Friends of the Earth / FAI (Argentina)
from Culmine, September 30th
“We believe that everything we were taught since childhood has been to make us unthinking beings, obedient and fearful citizens. From school to the family, which also passed by her, the powerful tell us what they want to say about the patriots, the heroes, and the “good” people, instead of speaking of the forgotten “Indians”, as Columbus called them, who were eliminated here by Sarmiento with words and the Rock with the sword.
Today these forgotten people live in miserable slums and walk through life salvaging what they can to survive, despite all the overbearing behaviors that society teaches them. Such is the responsibility of the capitalist system.
Hardly anyone knows how to live without technology and every day they sell more unnecessary products. But whether people are offered them or demand them, they are only seduced by the vices of power and ambition, and with small or large investments they remain within the system and fit into society.
They still believe in religion and politics, and wait for a new leader to bring order to the country, some other fascist to remind them of Peron. Meanwhile, they’re thrilled to buy fast cars, and if they can’t afford that, they’re content that “their team” won the soccer game, so they’ll have something to talk about during their dreadful routine of work which they believe it is the only thing that makes them feel proud and useful. Otherwise they wouldn’t be able to eat, would go crazy from boredom, they could become prisoners for their rebellion or even be killed. Those are the options available to people who are aware of the harsh reality that we live. And despite the different ways of understanding the world that exist, we’re all the same, but some choose to simply drive cars, others decided to set them on fire in:
Marcos Paz and Pedro Lozano, Donato Alvarez and Tres Arroyos, Allende and Arregui, Emilio Lamarca and Nogoya.
Whether by day or night, at any moment we can attack that which oppresses us and keeps us from being free. Previously, in our last statement we forgot to mention that there were eight cars and luxury SUVs burned, on this occasion we claim only four.
Was it not luxury cars that were burned? If so, why not bring to light in the mass media?
This was for comrade Jose Lopez, imprisoned and charged with arson/bomb attacks against the established order in Madrid.”
